She Wouldn’t Hear It

We were just talking.  I said something generally stupid.  I said “I don’t know why I said that, that was just stupid”.

She stopped our discussion and said “Mamo, you never say anything stupid.  That wasn’t stupid.”

I tried to tell her that I do, indeed, say something stupid.  Probably more often than I recognize.

She wouldn’t hear it.

Though I felt obligated to convince her it occurred to me she would discover soon enough how flawed I (we) can be.

Faith in me.Maybe her faith in me will encourage me to be less stupid.
